Fresh Meals and Gifts' meal-making team transforms healthy ingredients into a full menu's worth of prepared edibles to take home, thaw and heat up as microwavable single servings or feasts for up to six dining companions. After ordering, picking up, and cooking pre-prepped ingredients, pseudo-chefs serve up cheesy slices of beef lasagna that silence the filibustering tummies of one ($9), two to three ($17), or four to five ($32) dinner guests. Hands reach to arrange vegetable side dishes around the perimeter of herb-and-parmesan pork tenderloin ($9–$32); asparagus breaks through melted cheese and peeks out of whole-wheat penne pasta ($9–$32). Alternatively, parmesan-panko cod strips sit on a bed of rice ($9–$32), and 12-inch take-and-bake pizzas fill kitchens with the aromas from a custom blend of toppings ($12). Fresh's culinary gurus equip each of their edible offerings with full thawing and cooking instructions, include a complete list of ingredients used to prepare each meal, and, after tapping each ingredient three times with a carrot, can transform many of their items into vegetarian meals upon request.
Awarded the Certificate of Excellence in Manufacturing from the Canadian Bottled Water Association, Corpell's Water utilizes a multistage filtering process, stainless-steel and food-grade piping, and hourly in-house and weekly third-party quality tests to produce enticing jugs of pristine drinakables. The 10-step filtration process catapults water through reverse osmosis, UV sterilization, and ozonation before bottling it in 5-gallon bottles for delivery or pickup. For the cooler bereft, Corpell's delivers a base-model water cooler to begin the waterworks (a $200 value), and then helps it fulfill its delugian destiny by stocking it with water bottles in minimum increments of three (a $7.25 value/bottle; three bottles typically equal a one-month supply) and by providing individual stainless-steel wide-mouth water bottles (a $9.99 value/bottle) so imbibers always have pure, refreshing water to put out small pants fires.

Inside a vintage studio, Cake-ology's playful bakers craft custom cakes entirely from scratch. They sandwich more than 11 butter cream icing flavours such as mocha, raspberry, cinnamon, and orange between two layers of cake flavours such as marble, red velvet, lemon, and spice. After baking, they decorate their creations with repeating butter cream swirls and stripes, or layer on colorful fondant to create cakes that look like dogs, cars, or a slightly bigger cake. In addition to full-sized desserts, they also mold batter into cupcakes and cakettes - morsels of cake mixed with butter cream and dipped in chocolate. To complement the gallery of colourful cakes, they also make daily-changing baked goods such as imperial cookies, caramel pecan bars, and date slices.
